Who is Al Etmanski?
Al Etmanski is a community organizer, social entrepreneur and author. He is a founding partner of Social Innovation Generation (SiG) and was part of the June 2012 dialogue on social innovation in Halifax, co-sponsored by SIG, that led to the founding of Engage Nova Scotia. Al says he is eager to return to Nova Scotia, where he cut his "community organizing teeth" in the 1970s. He continues, "My heart has never left Nova Scotia. I look forward to exploring the deeper patterns of change that exist in Nova Scotia with the Engage network."
Al is also a founder of BC Partners for Social Impact. Previously he co-founded Planned Lifetime Advocacy Network (PLAN) with his wife Vickie Cammack and Jack Collins. Al is an Ashoka fellow, and a faculty member of John McKnight’s Asset Based Community Development Institute (ABCD). He once played air guitar with Randy Bachman of BTO (Bachman-Turner-Overdrive) in a rock video which convinced him to stick with his day job. Read his blog here: http://aletmanski.com/blog/
